Thread: Can Albuterol or Budesonide decrease supply?

  1. #1

    Default Can Albuterol or Budesonide decrease supply?

    My 7 mo son has been needing nebuizing treatments of Albuterol and Budesonide multiple times a day for a couple months now. I have noticed a dramatic drop in supply around this same time. Can either of these drugs cause a drop in my supply? My son wont keep his mask on, so we hold it in front of his nose, so I inhale a lot of it.

    I looked those both up in lactmed https://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/newtoxnet/lactmed.htm

    and am not seeing anything about them affecting milk production- in fact there is just very little info at all. I suggest that on Monday you call infantrisk http://www.infantrisk.com/ and talk to someone on the phone, they may have more complete info for you.

    Giving these treatments sounds a bit time consuming and stressful. Make sure you are taking care of yourself especially watch that you keep well hydrated at all times. Low production could also be caused by baby not nursing very often or not effectively. If that is the case, increasing your overall milk output either by getting baby to nurse more often or by pumping (or both) may help.

    Here is a good overall article on milk production if you have not seen this yet: http://kellymom.com/hot-topics/low-supply/
